    Just ordered a pair for myself, he's got 6 left.

    I don't have a dog in the fight, just figured anyone who's been looking at an upgrade might want to know since the price is reasonable and you won't have to muck about with the heat sink BS.

    EDIT: Looks like the price went way up since I bought mine, weird. They were $90/ea, now $200/ea.

    True, but note these are 4 core, not 6 core, if you are trying to upgrade a dual 4.1 into a 12core box.

    Thanks for the tip
